‘Dirty dancer’ forces back Moscow-London flight

2011-08-26 11:59

Sleepy early morning passengers on a flight from Moscow’s biggest airport to London may have thought they were dreaming today when a drunken Russian woman staged erotic dances on the plane.

But crew on the 7am flight from Domodedovo airport to London decided to return to Moscow as the woman (39), a native of the Russian region of Tatarstan, was deemed to be causing an inconvenience to passengers, the RIA Novosti news agency reported.

“The woman was in a state of insobriety, inconveniencing the passengers, taking off their glasses and dancing erotic dances,” a spokesperson for transport police said, quoted by the news agency.

The crew then announced that after just 15 minutes of flight the plane was turning back.

On arrival, the woman was arrested and taken to a local hospital to be examined, the spokesperson said.

The name of the airline was not disclosed. – Sapa-AFP
